Guy King has built a reputation as one of the greatest blues and jazz artists to come out of Chicago in recent history, but his newest release album Joy Is Coming establishes him as much more than that. The autobiographical 'Joy Is Coming' sees King showcase his songwriting chops, bringing to mind Bill Withers, Eric Clapton and Steely Dan while presenting King’s true artistic voice.
Guy King’s unique approach to the guitar has been compared to jazz legend Wes Montgomery and blues legend Albert King. As he has graced stages around the world, he has captured the attention of fans and noted guitarists everywhere. Joy Is Coming is a soulful and inspiring compilation of songs, straight from the heart.
Guy King’s first solo album 'Livin’ It' was released in 2009, followed by two more solo releases 'I Am Who I Am And It Is What It Is' and 'By Myself'. In 2015, King signed with Delmark Records and released his 2016 album, 'Truth'. King has toured internationally including Europe and Brazil, and has performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival, among many others.
